The ACC abruptly announced on Thursday within an hour of its 1st quarterfinal game that the conference has cancelled its 2020 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament in Greensboro, NC.
This morning ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced that the games would ‘go on’ despite the pandemic of the COVID-19 coronavirus with limited fans (150) and it would be up to the discretion of each school as to whether or not band, cheerleaders and mascots would be able to attend.
NOW the ACC has elected to cancel its Men’s Basketball tournament before the quarterfinal games could begin.
Statement from the ACC
“Following additional consultation with the league’s presidents and athletic directors, and in light of the continued conversations surrounding the fluidity of COVID-19, the Atlantic Coast Conference will immediately cancel the remainder of the 2020 ACC Tournament. For NCAA Tournament automatic qualification purposes, Florida State will represent the league as the ACC Champion. We are disappointed for our student-athletes, schools and fans to have to make this decision; however, the overall health and safety of all involved is the priority.”
